Varicose and spider veins

Varicose and spider veins can make you feel self-conscious, but they may be more of a concern than just a cosmetic one. Varicose veins can also signal a health problem. If not properly diagnosed and treated, spa-stripped veins can return or even worsen. Our vein care services are staffed by board-certified surgeons and trained specialists. We'll diagnose why they're developing, for treatment that works. 

Varicose and spider veins can be caused by pregnancy, heredity or a medical condition. Spider veins can appear as bursts of red or blue veins. Varicose veins visibly bulge under the skin as weak spots pool blood and stretch. They may be painless, but as they progress they can cause heaviness and pain in the calves.

This non–invasive procedure is done by making several small cuts in the skin, allowing the varicose vein to be easily removed.

Radiofrequency ablation

This minimally-invasive procedure uses radio waves to heat and destroy the tissue surrounding the area of the vein.

An injection into the veins that causes the blood to clot and scars the inside wall of the vein. The injected vein closes and fades from visibility.

Radio frequency energy therapy

Also called Venefit(TM) Targeted Endovenous therapy, this minimally-invasive treatment uses radio frequency energy. The waves contract collagen in the vein walls, causing them to collapse and close. Blood then reroutes through healthy veins.
